Another %&$! Social Media Network?

Tsu, tsunation, tsunami

Just when I thought I had a handle on all the "major" social media sites, here we go... 

BUT is this one a game changer? It's called tsu.co. Yes, I typed that correctly. Its ".co" NOT ".com." It's about a month old and people are calling it a possible "Facebook killer". 

The difference between this site and all the other sites we use is that they supposedly pay you for being social. In other words, you get paid for sharing content, getting comments, shares and likes. Everything that we already do on Facebook, Google+, twitter, etc... - Wanting to get paid for something we already do seems like a no brain-er. 

From their FAQ section:

" We share social revenues with everyone, for any type of content, size of network or level of influence. Using tsÅ« requires nothing more than what you already do on other social media platforms today."  

As far as I understand from the site's break down of revenue, they (tsu) takes 10% of ad revenue off the top. The other 90% is distributed to the users- which leads me to the Family Tree

The family tree is also known as your "personal social network". These are the people you personally invite to tsu using your unique invite link, like this one:

>>>> https://www.tsu.co/MadameDreamer <<<<
(Yes, it is invite only. You can use that link as your invite)

Now, back to this family tree. Below, is the info-graphic they use to show how revenue is divided among users. Its based on 4 users, A invites B who invites C who then invites D. 


The site also stresses the importance of "authentic engagement" meaning they do not want follow-to-follow posts and no spam. Spam and you'll be banned. 

So here's what I know so far:
  • It's FREE
  • Its invite only >> Invitation Link << 
  • Its not a quick way to make money but the more you use it, the better your chances
  • You can share across other social media platforms
  • There's $100 minimum cash out limit
  • You can have both followers and Friends 
  • Hashtags are encouraged (of coarse)
  • Built in analytics - great for bloggers
  • There's a built in photo editor for your posts (instagram anyone?)

~Final thoughts~ 
As a blogger, what's the worse that can happen? You never make a penny and you get more eyes/traffic on your site? Another platform.. another way to share. I say join with no expectation but to be social and see what happens. 

Have you joined already? Share your thoughts, tips, opinions...
